Where to find E-Books

There has been a lot of buzz lately about e-books and fortunately for you, the University Libraries have a growing collection of e-books. While you can’t do a search for e-books only in Minerva, they will appear in a regular book search in the catalog. The "Location" field for these books will contain an online link which will take you to the text of the e-book.

The University Libraries have certain collections of e-books available for you to browse through. Many of these collections are for academic purposes so they are great additions to your research. The collections include e-books on subjects ranging from computer science to math and history. In addition, on our Databases and Indexes list, be sure to look at NetLibrary. Entering NetLibrary through Databases and Indexes, you can create a user profile which will give you the option of “checking out��? a book. Instead of searching NetLibrary each time for the same book, you can store it in a list of favorites to refer to multiple times. Check out these resources today!

If you are using e-books or any other electronic resource for your papers, you will need to know the correct citations for referencing. The APA Style Guide to Electronic Reference online will show you how to cite online resources. (The complete Chicago Manual of Style is also available in e-book form.)

Don't forget to Ask a Librarian if you need more assistance.
